World Theater

World Theater Partner(s): Amy Trompetter
Barnard College

Access: Columbia only
Released: October 2007


The World Theater website was born of the spectacular appeal and wealth of codified information located in aural and visual media resources for improving teaching and learning of world theater. Students use the website to pursue original research from primary materials, design comparative analyses by quoting concrete examples of performances, and assemble excerpts from Web archives. Students use their research to take the course in directions that are more relevant to their lives. With easy access to a critical mass of specifically selected media, students are able to revisit previous units, locate additional curricular through-lines, and discuss their findings in facilitated discussion and collaboration spaces.
